Girl Scout Kristin Biggs, Charlotte, has been awarded an academic scholarship for her long-term involvement in Girl Scouting and for earning their Girl Scout Gold Award, the highest award in Girl Scouting.
To earn her Gold Award, Biggs, daughter of Mark and Kim Biggs, and an individually registered Girl Scout, worked in partnership with the BackPack Weekend Food Program to help needy children improve their dental habits. She created and distributed more than 1,000 dental kits through the program, as well as put together a dental care guidelines video available on YouTube.
She and three others from the district were awarded $1,000 each from the Girl Scouts Carolinas Peaks to Piedmont Council.
